NICOLE RICHIE BRINGS HER TWEETS TO LIFE IN NEW VH1 SERIES "#CANDIDLYNICOLE"

Based on the Successful AOL Online Series "#CandidlyNicole," the New Television Series Produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder Is Set to Premiere Thursday, July 17th With 8 Episodes

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 31, 2014) - Fashion icon, Creative Director of House of Harlow 1960, actress, author, entrepreneur and philanthropist Nicole Richie will bring her unfiltered sense of humor and unique ability to infiltrate any environment to a new VH1 reality series based on her entertaining tweets. "#CandidlyNicole," produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder and based on the successful AOL online series of the same name, is set to premiere on VH1 on Thursday, July 17th with 8 half-hour episodes.

Voted one of the "best Twitter feeds" by Time magazine, Nicole will take audiences on a fun and intimate ride through her own amusing point of view based on her outlandish reflections on social media (where she has more than four million followers). The show will detail her daily adventures and give insight into her decisions on style, relationships, her work life and her journey to adulthood. Whether it's having a discussion with her dad about who his favorite daughter is on Father's Day, meeting with a doctor about having her tramp stamp removed or helping her best friend find a date, Nicole has no problem offering her uncensored opinion to everyone she meets (even if they didn't ask for it). Her one-of-a-kind, tongue-in-cheek commentary inspires people to laugh, learn and shake their head in wonderment.

"Nicole's sharp, acerbic sense of humor and broad audience appeal make '#CandidlyNicole' a perfect fit for the VH1 brand," said Susan Levison, VH1's EVP of Original Programming & Development. "Viewers will enjoy her unique point of view and earnest look at pop culture as well as her fearless exploration of anything and everything taboo."

Recognizing Nicole's affinity for the VH1 brand and establishing a broader and deeper relationship with Nicole, VH1 has agreed to a first look/development deal between the network and Nicole's production company, Honey Child Productions.

Richie rose to prominence for her role in the massive hit television series, "The Simple Life," which lasted five seasons and brought Richie international recognition. Afterward, she turned her focus to other projects including charity work, environmental issues, writing and starting a family. Richie married musician Joel Madden, had two children and founded The Richie Madden Children's Foundation. She currently acts as the Creative Director for House of Harlow 1960, offering ready-to-wear, jewelry, eyewear, footwear and handbags.

Richie has recently starred as one of the three mentors on NBC's "Fashion Star" and is also a New York Times best-selling author of the novel The Truth About Diamonds.

Nicole Richie is repped by WME, Impression Entertainment and Grubman, Shire & Meiselas.

"#CandidlyNicole" will be produced Telepictures and World of Wonder. Nicole Richie, Michael Baum and Carrie Franklin serve as executive producers. Executive producing for VH1 are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes and Kristen Kelly.
